Easy Princess Dress Pattern: Have you seen Frozen?

princess dress patternI am clueless about it because I don’t have a little girl in my house anymore, so I don’t really know much about the recent movie “Frozen” except that it was very popular.  Parents of a child under 9 will be more familiar with the lyrics and the story line.  A main character in the movie was the princess and as you would expect, the Disney artists made her gown magnificent and I’ve had a lot of requests about whether we could design a project to make something similar.

While I didn’t see the movie, I am certainly still familiar with having “princess” in the house and I know how much little girls love the idea of princess costumes.  My daughter, who is now fifteen, used to parade herself around day and night in a tutu.  On “bad” or extreme princess days the regalia would include wings, tiara, light up sneakers, jeans, hand bag (with pink fur trim), sparkling jacket, and sword.  It was a bizarre cross between Tinkerbell and Joan-of-Arc.  I say Tinkerbell, because my girl was tiny, born 9 weeks premature.  She was the size of a little doll and people often asked, should she really be doing that?

Little girls often want to feel like princesses and I always got true enjoyment of watching my girl wearing a costume I have made.  For moms or grandmothers with similar requirements, here’s is an easy one.  I have lined it because the netting could become itchy around the armhole.  It is necessary to use very soft nylon netting or tulle.

    Lovely, The reader above was right. it is very popular with all ages. I made her the Anna costume using the commercial pattern. That pattern has some real issue in sizing… but we got through it. My daughter is a music major at a local University and used her Halloween costume as a costume to sing that nerve-racking theme song… lol. Her nieces have been begging to have dresses to “like” their auntie’s will have to give your pattern a try.

    o gosh, my 4 year old grandchild takes after us, european height and looks like a 6 year old! So the 4 year old dressup I bought her was too small, so I cut off the top, made it into a skirt, sewed sequins on a white t shirt and made buttons on the top and hooks on the cape, she loves it, hahaha

    Your little girl understood that princesses can be both pretty AND powerful.

    Frozen is weirdly popular across lots of age groups in the USA. I’m a college age woman and I know a few people my age who might just use this tutorial for themselves.

    My granddaughter is crazy for everything Frozen. I watched the movie with her and she sings along with all the parts even the reindeer.We bought her the cape and the sparkles come off all over the place. It was handmade on Etsy.I remember being enamoured with Tinkerbell when I was little. Our parents took us to Disney. My sister and I had glow in the dark wands and used to hide in the closet to use them. I’m happy that you will bring this magic to many a home with this pattern! So sorry for daylillydawn’s son. My mother was on dialysis, so I know how difficult this can be. I will say a prayer that he gets a donor.

      I love your story! Hiding in the closet! I will use this to add glow in the dark details to the dress, thank you for comment.

    I can relate to you when you say your little girl was tiny, my first child was born weighing 3 lbs 7 1/2 ounces and was 17 inches long. The day we brought him home from the hospital, a woman asked me if I was holding a doll in the carrier or was it a real baby. I replied that it was a real baby. He stayed small all his life. He is currently 40 years old, weighs less than 100 lbs, has never weighed more than 99 lbs. He is a bout 5 foot 2 inches tall, which is very short for a man here in the USA.He was born with kidney disease that affected his growth and in 2000 he had a kidney transplant. But in 2013 a customer with sick children came into the store where he was working. One of the children coughed in his face and gave him aninfection that nearly killed him. It did cause him to reject the kidney after 13 ye4ars of working perfectly for him. He is now back on dialysis and deals with it the only way he knows how to, one day at a time.

What do you think?
